Dina, With my first child I drank Dr. Pepper constantly. I didn't even want to eat, just drink Dr.P. But the baby had caffine withdrawls for about two weeks. My doctor told me that 3 serving were ok (that's 3- 6oz gla__ses or 1and a half 12 oz cans per day) Water is your best bet. Plus, if you need flavor try Gatoraid or Kool-aid, yeah there's lots of unnecessary sugar but no caffine. The doctor told me that caffine was a drug just like any other and you need to limit your intake. Hope I helped.

Also try Sprite, or colored pop like orange or straawberry. They also have no caffine.

A nice alternative to Pop, that I do is drink a sparkling water like Perrier, or Montcalm, or Sanpeligrino and squeeze some lemon, as much as you want, into the drink. Yum, yum. And now that I'm pregnant, it's very strange but the lemon dosn't taste sour anymore, instead, it actually tastes sweet and alittle tart. You can try this with lime as well. And of course there is no caffine.

I used to provide nutrition counseling to pregnant women and am now pregnant myself. Unfortunately, soda is not the best choice of beverages. Supposedly, one cup of a caffeinated beverage per day is okay. Caffeine speeds up your heartbeat, as well as, your baby's. It has also been found to increase the risk of miscarriage. The sweeteners found in diet sodas also increase this risk. You may want to have caffeine-free soda. Also, since nutrition is more important while you're pregnant, keep in mind that soda contains no nutritive value...just "empty calories" unfortunately. Sorry for the bad news.

too much caffeine is not good, but even soda that does not have caffeine can make you gain a lot of unnecessary weight

Definately stay awy from those that are considered diet.. "Soda's or Pop's " Aspartame is not good for pregnancy."

Because soda has caffine it's not good to drink alot.It also cause alot of weight gain.My doc said only two cups of coffee so i think it would be the same for soda.I only have one cup of coffee and one of soda sometimes per day,

I live in TX and we call it Coke. Any carbinated beverage is a Coke. I was told by my doctor that drinking 2 cokes a day would be fine!

in south Florida, we called it coke, no matter what carbonated beverage it is. It is coke. Now, in AZ it is soda.
